    About this event

    Have you been itching to learn some basic sewing skills using a domestic sewing machine? Maybe your own machine is gathering dust at home and you need some help taking the first step? If so, this bag making for beginners workshop is the perfect start to your sewing adventure!

    In this three hour sewing workshop you’ll make a beautiful cotton shoulder bag complete with lining and pockets to take home after. You’ll have the choice of two different fabrics to make your tote bag with and it will be matched with a waterproof wax canvas, cotton lining and strong carry handles.

    You’ll be given all the materials ready-cut with detailed instructions on how to sew your tote bag. Lauren will guide you through the whole process, showing you how to thread and use the machine, and construct your bag. Lauren will provide plenty of tips and tricks on sewing techniques for you to use in future projects.

    All other sewing accessories will be provided, so all you need to do is turn up!

    What you’ll learn:

    • Threading and using a domestic sewing machine
    • General sewing techniques
    • Edge stitching
    • Using a rivet press
    • Achieving a professional finish
    • Basic bag making techniques

    There are only 5 places on this workshop plus an extra 2 for anyone who wants to bring their own machine, so book soon to avoid disappointment.
